Editorial Reviews


"Adria J. Cimino accomplishes something that is beyond difficult to do-- she successfully blurs fact and fiction, reality and fantasy, to keep not only her main character, but also the reader, guessing."
-- Erin Celello, author of Learning to Stay

"A remarkable and fantastical journey! Adria J. Cimino spins a web ofbelievable magic, love that transcends time, betrayal, redemption, andabove all... Destiny. You won't be able to turn the pages fast enough to see what else is around the corner!" -- Amy Impellizzeri, author ofaward-winning novel Lemongrass Hope.

"An intriguing and fast paced read about people whose present dayexistences are eerily interlinked to the past. The book explores, amongother things, questions about love and sanity, and how sometimes thereis an unexpected interplay between the two. Hats off to Adria Cimino for a compelling read."
-- Kristin Louise Duncombe, author of Trailing: A Memoir

"When Kat finds herself in unexplainable situations, she begins todoubt her sanity. Are these things really happening? Is shehallucinating, or having extremely vivid dreams? There are lots oftwists and surprises in this story, but at its heart it's a tender lovestory. Loved it!"
-- Elle Marie, author of Chronicle of the Mound Builders

"An intriguing love story where the past plays out in present-dayLondon and New York. One to read cuddled up with a cup of Earl Grey orhot chocolate!"
-- Lizzie Harwood, author of Triumph: Collected Stories

"An absolutely beautiful writer." -- Kristy Woodson Harvey, author of Dear Carolina
